A Christmas Gift to Cherish: Musician and Wife Enjoy Shen Yun

“We bought this for our Christmas present for each other. That’s why we appreciate it a lot.”

“The beauty and grace and all of it—it’s so wonderful.”

“[The music is] fantastic. I was just over there [orchestra pit] looking at the instruments, wonderful. Sounds really great.”

“I think that’s what they do [touch people’s heart]; they do it without words, you know?”

“I don’t see China as being cheap stuff, you know? I appreciate it. … They say they’re not allowed to perform in China because of dictatorship and closed control by the government, by the dictatorship; that’s too bad.”

“I feel excitement. … This is something we can’t get everywhere. This is unique for us.”
